Information About Alcohol

This free online textbook/course was designed "to present students with the opportunity to learn about the science underlying the effects of alcohol on human biology and behavior through a series of inquiry-based classroom lessons. Young people are natural scientists. They have a curiosity about the world around them and about themselves as individuals. Since they have little in the way of life experiences, many young people tend to view themselves as nearly invincible. Consequently, when adults caution them against engaging in risky behaviors such as drinking alcohol, some don't listen. They feel that such warnings aren't for them and apply only to those less grown up than themselves."
